Queenstown Lakes District House Rental Photos and Description

Homestay, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 3)

Affordable seasonal rates!!! We offer a modern studio unit on the ground floor level of our home with all the modcons yet with a feeling of a home away from home. We live on a property where we are returning the environment back to native New Zealand bush, but we also enjoy a garden profuse with flowers and edible plants and fruit in summer. Make use of our large garden and the paths leading to private quiet areas to take a nap in a hammock, read a book on a comfortable lounger, eat your meals outside on the table and chairs or wander around watching and listening to the birds. Great opportunities to photograph tuis, bellbirds, waxeyes, kereru; wood pigeons, and occasionally the reclusive NZ falcon. Our ever growing populations of tuis and bellbirds are a constant delight and they will serenade you with their famous birdsong all year round. Wilson Bay is hugely popular in summer for water sports, and all year round for the Wilson Bay walking tracks and mountain biking tracks. Try your luck fishing in the bay or at one of the many hotspots nearby. We also live in close proximity to many other walking, hiking, and mountain biking tracks. Grant is a hiker, mountain biker, hunter, fisherman, was a commercial paua diver for 23 years, and will be happy to advise you on all the places to explore during your stay. His floor to ceiling topographical map has been well used! Monica is an avid gardener, artist and manages Southern Lakes Info Centre and will be happy to assist you in any action activities you may wish to try during your stay in New Zealand's adventure capital. We share a private driveway with our neighbours and offer off road parking. FREE WIFI, FreeView TV, use of DVDs and our book library. We have a friendly dog and a cat who thinks he is a dog. If you aren't keen on animals we are happy to keep them away from you. Cell coverage can sometimes be a bit patchy depending on your cell plan and the weather and we are happy for you to use our phone if needed.

Special conditions:

Smoking is allowed outside only. Pets may be allowed with prior approval, although no pets are allowed on any furniture. The deck is not suitable for young unsupervised children, and our private driveway is shared by 2 other users, so care needs to be taken with young children.

Extras: Cleaning (included); Linen (included);

Wilson bay is beautiful and peaceful but close enough to queenstown (10min drive) to pop in for dinn

  • 5 of 5

Wilson bay is beautiful and peaceful but close enough to queenstown (10min drive) to pop in for dinner and drinks. The bach is part of main house but with seperate access and a beutiful porch area. Gardens are stunning.
